Square Enix have revealed a new online mode for Hitman: Absolution.
Contracts is an asynchronous online mode in which players create and share their own custom hit challenges within Hitman: Absolution. Choose a level, targets, weapons and then set your rules for completing your contract based on time, style and witnesses.
“Contracts was inspired by our loyal and extremely creative fans, many of whom are still finding new and amazing ways of taking out targets in previous Hitman games,” said Christian Elverdam, gameplay director for Hitman: Absolution. “Contracts mode finally delivers a way for Hitman players to fully realize both their creativity and competitive nature. Whether they’re fighting to shave off a split second from their time or combining elements and timing events to create unprecedented accidental deaths, gamers can now challenge and inspire each another with an endless variety of user-generated contracts.”
Upon accepting and successfully completing a contract, players will be rewarded in contract dollars with the amount depending upon how well they performed. In order to create more elaborate and creative setups, the player can choose from a vast arsenal of weapons, disguises, upgrades, and techniques; all of which can be unlocked by either playing through the storymode of Hitman: Absolution or by spending those hard-earned contract dollars.
